GNOME Disks to check health of drives

Did you know that you can use GNOME Disks, an application for checking the health of your drives, including solid state drives? Here's how:

Neat! I didn't even know I had this utility; it must have been installed when I added the gnome desktop to Ubuntu.

Mac user running Ubuntu 16.04 (Unity, Gnome) on Dell XPS 13 (4gb RAM, 250gb SSD)
Ubuntu 16.04, Chromixium, Remix OS and Crunchbang++ on upgraded 11.6" Acer 1810TZ Olympic Edition (4gb RAM, 240 SSD)
Ubuntu 16.04 on Mac mini, iMac & Dell 7020

Neah, eh? I knew it was there but didn't know about the checking ability. As you say, it must be part of the regular GNOME suite. It wasn't installed in a standard install of elementary, for example.
